“I don’t want any kids to be sad that they have no hair.” -Emily James, Age 3

I first posted this story in May 2014 when my blog was much more unknown than now. I thought it was a meaningful and well done video story so I fished it out of the archives and polished it up a bit and hope you find it meaningful. – Dick S

Emily James Mailing her Hair to Sick Child Screen Shot



The video, Emily’s Hair,  below follows an earlier theme on this blog of Pay It Forward but it does so in a very unexpected and delightful way by a little girl.

The video was produced by Creative Humanity, a Facebook Page with over 3000 Likes.

Creative Community posts a variety of photos, videos and stories that pretty closely follow their name – they are creative and show or tell something about humanity on this planet.

If you are a Facebooker, look up the Page – Creative Community.

In this particular post titled Emily’s Hair, Creative Community says:

Stop what you are doing and watch this. This video will make you a better person.”

I stopped and watched and you know, I feel like a better person.  I hope you will, too!


Emily James


Emily James is a 3-year-old girl who sympathizes with children who have cancer.

To her, not having hair seems very sad.

To help provide relief, Emily decided to do something intimidating but simple — donate her hair.

“I don’t want any kids to be sad that they have no hair.

What I want to do is give them my hair,” she said matter-of-factly.

Take a look.



This short but precious video went viral all over the internet and in TV news stories back in 2014.

This is another reason I felt I didn’t do enough to give it “my best shot” on this blog.
